PUPILS at a village school have been going ‘green’ thanks to a little help from Yorkshire Water.
Meltham C of E Primary School took part in the company’s One Million Green Fingers project, which is supported by the HBOS bank and aims to get children interested in the environment.
Project workers visited the school and created four raised beds, which the pupils then filled with plants.
Year 3 and 5 children had drawn up plans of the beds and decided what to plant in them.
Each year group will now take control of one bed and make sure it is maintained.
Denise Yeadon, learning mentor at the school, said: “The beds look fantastic and the school wishes to thank HBOS and Yorkshire Water for making this possible.
“We have never had anywhere to grow things before, except in pots, which is not ideal.
“We look forward to using the beds to plant all kinds of things in future.”
